Hello and welcome to another round of CASEing the Catty, where each week we focus on another section of the catalogue to inspire us. This week we are in the Floral Romance section of the catalogue. I loved the look of the little box on page 12 (shown below), but I decided to make it a card instead.
I started with a base of blushing bride card stock, and then added a layer of the delighfully detailed laser cut paper. This paper is from the annual catalogue, but we do have some brand new laser cut paper in the ocassions catalogue which is just as pretty. This paper is delicate so take care cutting it, but it is so gorgeous to use. I did adhere a layer of vellum onto the back of the laser cut paper, creating another shade of pink behind it.
For the oval I have used stamps from the Forever Lovely stamp set, and stamped in Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron. The die cut embellishments are in Soft Sea Foam and are cut using the Lovely Flowers Edgelits. I finished it with a sentiment from xxxx and some Powder Pink shimmer ribbon.
You might have noticed that I don’t always use exactly matching colours – as in my base is Blushing Bride but my ribbon is Powder Pink. My die cuts are in Soft Sea Foam and my stamping is in Mint Macaron. You don’t have to have every ink / paper / embellishment in every colour to make things work, use what you have in your stash. You would be surprised to find what you can get away with. It doesn’t always have to match perfectly to look good. A few different shades can create contrast. On that note – Come and Join in our challenege. If you have never played along before then this week is your week. I would love to see what you come up with!
